Well after today deer season will be over and it is time to get started on the smoker again. We picked up a couple of sheets of #9 expanded metal off craigslist for the build. They look brand new and were only $35 per sheet. We will use on for the cooking grates and the second for storage opposite the cooking chamber. I picked up a third one for my utility trailer as well. We are stocked up with plenty of supplies to get to work. We have all the steel for the fire box. I also have the parts to move the axle to the back of the trailer and replace the trailer coupler as well. I am trying to make all the trailers I have use a 2" ball. I have one more project to take care of around the house before we get started. I can't wait.
So I got that going for me. Which is nice.
